You can still do Leamington or Cov, you know.

Overdone it?

Physio was a bit inconclusive.  Reckons it's hard to diagnose foot things without going through a process of elimination. There's definitely some tendonitis but there might be some bone damage as well so I could go back to the GP and ask for referral for an MRI scan. Anyway it will still benefit from some physio treatment so had some ultrasound treatment and some massage. Ice and ibuprofen at home and back next week. No running. I guess I will go out on the bike tomorrow.  Struggling with motivation and baked again.

Sounds a bit rude leaving someone behind on a bike ride. That would be frowned upon at running club...wonder why it's more acceptable in cycling. Is your foot completely ok now, Marrows? 

Sounds like a good session, Tommy. Any possible10k's in the pipeline? There might be a Two Castles entry going soon if my foot isnt better soon.

First of all congratulations on your baby!  Totally understand the time pressures as I have three.  

My baby is 10 months old now and I still have a bit of this (approx 2 fingers so not as bad as some and didn't stop me running). How bad is yours?   I was seeing the physio for another issue and he said the best thing is pilates.  But you need to find a class that is physio led with small numbers as you need to make sure that you are doing the exercises correctly and engaging the right muscles as it can be counter productive otherwise.  

Agree as much walking as possible will help - do you have a buggy board for your toddler?  Or double buggy?  Load the toddler up with plenty of snacks, small toys etc and try and walk for an hour a day.  That wil get you back to time on your feet again and is best prep for then reintroducing small amounts of running.

FWIW I tried to start running again after 4 weeks but it was really a bit too early and I was still carrying a bit too much weight.  Tried again at 3 months and it was massively better.  At 9 months post-partum I ran the London marathon and set a 19 minute PB so it will come back.

DT - Sphinx 5 is Wednesday 17th June at 7:45. There is also Autumnal 5 on 19th August at 6:45.  Both Memorial Park.  The Godiva one is two quid more expensive.

I don't definitely know that it IS cuboid syndrome.  That's my current best guess though based on where it is, the dull ache progressing to sharpness if I point load it my standing on one leg.  I'm going to see my physio tomorrow night.  Hoping that he can just pop it back into place, tape it up and jobs a good un. Not sure I trust myself to correctly pop a bone back into place.  Especially if that's not actually the problem.   

Anyway, I'm massively fed up and grumpy and have gained 3lb's  from a combination of very little exercise and doing stuff like eating a whole bag of the kids marshmallows spread with Nutella. (No need to update the table, Skinny - it's like a downward only ratchet).

Muddy - you are FLYING.  Amazing how far quite a short distance feels when you set off a bit fast though. But if you consider 5k pace should feel really quite unpleasant all the way around or you are not pushing hard enough then 3k should feel like whipping oneself with the shitty disembodied tail off a fetid cow.  Is that a fair assessment?  

Lou and I are pondering a Vale of York option for the Autumn half PB attempt.  I may also do Kenilworth as a warm up but it's a bit undulating.

We chose to get married at the end of October reckoning the weather is always a gamble in the UK anyway so we'd go for a cheap date and make it nice regardless of weather. In the event it absolutely pissed it down but it didn't matter a jot and we have some fab photos of us in the grounds with a huge umbrella.

Excellent work Mr V, Muddy, Charlie and Bob.

Glad you enjoyed getting up close and personal with a massive cock as well, Lit.  Always makes for a cheerful weekend.   

Went for a test run.  Didn't get to the end of the road before I decided I'm still crocked and came home.  Thinking it may be Cuboid syndrome.  Am I right in thinking Bob had this and self manipulated it mended again?

Those jelly legs sound much like mine were at Hilly last week.  Not nice.  But congrats on your "tiny" PB!  You're probably in for good things this summer.
